2021-2022 Spring Term
We can't wait to show you each week what we have been doing in class.
What a busy first three days we have had. We have learnt about New Years resolutions and have even written our own New Years resolutions to try and keep this year. We have been looking at and writing our numbers this week. We have learnt about how different countries celebrate New Year's Eve and New Year's day, along with countries like China and Thailand who celebrate their New Years at a different time. With looking at different counties and how they celebrate this we have located these places on a globe and large floor map. We talked about how different places have traditions like Scotland singing 'Auld Lang Syne,' Argentina running around with a suitcase in their home to bring loads of travel for the year, Spain eating 12 grapes before midnight and Thailand having a water festival where they have a water fight in the streets. We then had fun with singing 'Auld Lang Syne' while crossing our arms and we then walked around with our Story suitcase to have a go at these traditions. We did not have a water fight even though the children really wanted to, was way to cold for that!
With it being cold this week children have been having great fun in the frost and ice. Children enjoyed breaking the ice in the water tray. We ended the week with our PE session where we had great fun showing off the different ways we can move.
This week in Hudson class we have been learning about healthy eating. We have looked at different foods and how they are healthy or unhealthy. We have made rainbow plates and we have been creative with some fruit by painting with it. We have had a great time trying different fruits and vegetables, some were very nice and others were not our favourite. We have been matching pictures of fruit with the correct label of healthy and unhealthy. We also have been making and eating fruit kebabs, we thought really hard about what we wanted on our fruit kebabs.
We have been printing letters into playdough and practising our writing this week, Hudson class have been trying very hard with their phonics this week and have been attempting to spell our own words too.
In maths this week we have been learning about pictograms. We looked at a graph about favourite colours and could analyse this. We then made our very own pictogram to show our favourite fruit, we used a picture of our face to show which fruit we liked most. We could then count each section and decide on which was the most and least popular. Children then had a go on their own pictogram about their favourite colour.
We have also looked at the work of an artist this week. Continuing with our healthy eating theme, we looked at the Italian painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo who is best known for creating imaginative portrait made entirely of fruit, vegetables, flowers, fish and books. Children in Hudson class then created their own version of a fruit and vegetable portrait.
To end the week we had a great time in PE this week, unfortunately we were unable to use the hall so we did some yoga in the classroom, the children found this hilarious.
